Advice From My Boss

from Private Lives by Adam Baratz

/

lyrics

When you're feeling good
Good is all you need
When your days are bright
Then you can succeed
You don't have to show
What you seem to know
Sure is sure, that's what anyone can see
When you ask, they will always agree

You're an instant friend
Welcome any place
You can hold a room
People trust your face
Nothing clears the air
Like the simple care
Of a smile that doesn't ask a thing
It's a lot if that's all you can bring

When I started I knew I didn't know much
I was right
What I brought was a fire that wouldn't shrink back from the fight
That's what my boss said and then he gave me this role
I'd say, looking back now, I was pushed in this hole
My best friends all know that I'm a prick
They don't believe I want this
I'm doing what I tell my team: you have to follow your bliss

It's an easy tune
Bringing out your best
Still I'm not so sure
Every day's a test
I would walk away
And forget the pay
But I can't, there's just too much to do
And I wouldn't trust it with you
